The Shakers were a religious sect who splintered from a Quaker community in the mid-1700’s in Manchester, England. Known then derisively as “Shaking Quakers” because of the passionate shaking that would occur during their religious services, they were viewed as radicals, and their members were sometimes harassed and even imprisoned by the English. One of those imprisoned, Ann Lee, was named official leader of the church upon her release in 1772. Two years later, driven by her vision of a holy sanctuary in the New World, she led a small group of followers to the shores of America where they founded a colony in rural New York. The Shakers were pacifists who kept a very low profile, and their membership increased only modestly during the decades following their arrival. At their peak in the 1830’s, there were some 6,000 members in nineteen communities interspersed between Maine and Kentucky. Soon after the Civil War their membership declined dramatically. Their practice of intense simplicity and celibacy accounts for much of their decline. Today there is only one active Shaker community remaining, the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in New Gloucester, Maine. They maintain a Shaker Library, a Shaker Museum, and a website at www.shaker.lib.me.us. The Shakers were known for their architecture, crafts, furniture, and perhaps most notably, their songs. Shaker songs were traditionally sung in unison without instrumental accompaniment. Singing and dancing were vital components of Shaker worship and everyday life. Over 8,000 songs in some 800 songbooks were created, most of them during the 1830’s to 1860’s in Shaker communities throughout New England.

My work is built from four Shaker melodies — a sensuous nature song, a lively dance tune, a tender lullaby, and most famously, “Simple Gifts,” the hymn that celebrates the Shaker’s love of simplicity and humility. In setting these songs, I sought subtle ways to preserve their simple, straightforward beauty. Melodic freshness and


interest were achieved primarily through variations of harmony, of texture, and especially, of orchestration. The first movement is a setting of “In Yonder Valley”, generally regarded to be the oldest surviving Shaker song with text. This simple hymn in praise of nature is attributed to Father James Whittaker (1751-87), a member of the small group of Shakers who emigrated to America in 1774. My setting enhances the image of spring by turning the first three notes of the tune into a birdcall motive. The second movement, “Dance,” makes use of a tune from an 1830’s Shaker manuscript. Dancing was an important part of Shaker worship, and tunes such as this were often sung by a small group of singers while the rest of the congregation danced. One interesting feature in my setting occurs near the end of the movement, when the brasses state the tune at one-quarter speed in counterpoint against the woodwinds who state it at normal speed. The third movement is based on a Shaker lullaby, “Here Take This Lovely Flower,” found in Dorothy Berliner Commin’s extraordinary collection, Lullabies of the World. and in Daniel W. Patterson’s monumental collection, The Shaker Spiritual. This song is an example of the phenomenon of the gift song, music received from spirits by Shaker mediums while in trance (see pp. 316 ff. in Patterson, op cit., for a detailed account, and also Harold E. Cook’s Shaker Music: A Manifestation of American Folk Culture, pp. 52 ff.). Although the Shakers practiced celibacy, there were many children in their communities, including the children of recent converts as well as orphans whom they took in. Like many Shaker songs, this lullaby embodies the Shakers’ ideal of childlike simplicity. The finale is a setting of the Shakers’ most famous song, “Simple Gifts,” sometimes attributed to Elder Joseph Bracket (1797-1882) of the Alfred, Maine community, and also said (in Lebanon, New York, manuscript) as having been received from a Negro spirit at Canterbury, New Hampshire, making “Simple Gifts” possibly a visionary gift song. It has been used in hundreds of settings, most notably by Aaron Copland in the brilliant set of variations which conclude his Appalachian Spring. Without ever quoting him, my setting begins at Copland’s doorstep, and quickly departs. Throughout its little journey, the tune is never abandoned, rarely altered, always exalted.

I — In Yonder Valley Strive to keep the music light, but alive and flowing. Bring out the bird-call motive which occurs throughout the movement (e.g., flute 1, measure 1, the accented eighth-note to the half note). The triangle and glockenspiel parts add a light, crystalline quality to the texture. Their presence, combined with the generally light textures and avoidance of the lower register, reinforces the image of a bright spring morning. II — Dance The notes marked staccato may be played shorter than normal, and very lightly. This will give greater contrast to the accented notes, which are notated almost exclusively on the second half-note of the bar, giving the dance a somewhat offbeat feeling. At measure 49, the second and third trumpets, accompanied by the low brasses and woodwinds, state the dance melody at quarter speed against the first trumpets and upper woodwinds, who state the tune at normal speed. Make sure the second and third trumpets bring their part out. III — Here Take this Lovely Flower Begin the movement with a full, connected, rich sound, giving way to a sweeter, gentler sound at measure 9. In the canon of measures 17 to 24, the flutes and oboe should be in equal balance with the imitating clarinets. IV — Simple Gifts From measures 5 to 40, and again from measures 61 to 102, strive to maintain an optimistic, percussive, dance-like quality, and keep the notes light, but always energized. The tempo should not lag. Notes marked with accents and fp markings should ring like bright bells. In the chorale statement (measures 45-60) strive for richness and warmth. Beginning in measure 61, the energy builds, culminating in the climax at measure 99. The energy recedes in a final, nostalgic glimmer. The closing ritardando could be interpreted as a “molto ritardando,” and if so, the conductor may choose to shift to a four-beat pattern somewhere during the final five bars. FRANK TICHELI

In yonder valley there flows sweet union; Let us arise and drink our fill. The winter’s past and the spring appears; The turtle dove is in our land. In yonder valley there flows sweet union; Let us arise, and drink our fill. D A N C E

Virgins cloth’d in a clean white garment, How they move in a band of love, Comforts flow in a mighty current, We shall drink at the fountains above. Yea, we will rejoice with freedom, In this straight little narrow way, Here is the fold and the lambs all feeding, On this green we’ll skip and play. H E R E

Here take this lovely flower Thy mother sent to thee, Cull’d from her lovely bower Of sweet simplicity. O place it near thy bosom And keep it pure and bright, For in such lovely flowers The angels take delight. S I M P L E

G I F T S

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free; ‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be; And when we find ourselves in the place just right, ‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight. When true simplicity is gained, To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed To turn, turn will be our delight, ‘Til by turning, turning we come round right.

PRESERVING OUR MUSIC IT IS IMPORTANT TO PRESERVE OUR MUSICAL HERITAGE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

Acidic paper has been in widespread use since the turn of the century, and has become the bane of archivists, librarians, and others who seek to preserve knowledge intact, because it literally will self-destruct as it ages. Some paper, only three or four decades old, already has become impossible to handle — so brittle it crumbles to the touch. Surely we do not want today’s music to be unavailable to those who will inhabit the future. If the music of the Renaissance had not been written on vellum it could never have been preserved and we would not have it today, some four hundred years later. Let us give the same consideration to the musicians in our future. It was with this thinking that Manhattan Beach Music in 1988 first addressed the needs of the archivist by printing all of its concert band music on acid-free paper that met the standards specified in the American National Standard for Information Sciences — Permanence of Paper for Printed Library Materials (ANSI Z39.48-1984). The standard was revised on October 26, 1992 to include coated papers; all of our new editions and reprints of older editions meet this revised standard. With proper care and under proper environmental conditions, this paper should last for at least several hundred years.

Technical notes: Paper permanence is related to several factors: The acidity or alkalinity (pH) of the paper is perhaps the most critical criterion. Archival paper (also known as acid-free paper, alkaline paper, and permanent paper) is acid-free, has a pH between 7.5 and 10, is tear resistant, has an alkaline reserve equivalent to 2% calcium carbonate (to neutralize any acid that might arise from natural aging of the paper or from environmental pollution), and contains no unbleached pulp or groundwood (no more than 1% lignin by weight). The specific standards summarized here are set forth in detail by the National Information Standards Organization in American National Standard Z39.48-1992. For more information, contact: NISO, P.O. Box 1056, Bethesda, MD 20827.

This paper meets the requirements of ANSI/NISO Z39.48-1992 (Permanence of Paper)
